  Sedona Heritage Museum - is the homestead of Will and Annie Jordan. Going back quite a few years, there were 12 other farmers who filed a suit alleging crop damage due to the smelters sulfurous smoke of the United Verde Mining Company located in what is now Clarkdale Arizona.

Eventually the farmers finally were paid for their loses and Will Jordan bought land where the Sedona Heritage Museum now sits. Over the years Will's son Walter bought out his father's share of the land. They farmed Apple trees and grew grapes to make wine. This museum started out as one room and the other rooms were added over time.    Sedona Heritage Museum

The Sedona Heritage Museum is considered the "Caretakers of Sedona's History". Once you visit the museum and outbuildings, you will agree that much of the early history is located throughout the acreage of this museum. There is a whole wall of journals in one of the offices where anyone can go in and do research of the history of the founding families. Material is everywhere, and if you enjoy early Arizona settler history, this is a treasure trove of data, exhibits, background and notes. The barn houses the first Sedona Fire truck as well as  hundreds of other antiques used in Sedona, yesteryear. There is even one of the teal colored "M" s that McDonalds had to use in a historic first for the company. Sedona Heritage MuseumSedona Heritage Museum

 

This is another angle of the barn showing the back of the very first Sedona fire truck. On the left hand side is a 45 foot "Apple Grading Machine". Walter Jordan installed this right here in 1952. The sign continues with "He sold it in 1976 but it was unused for 18 years....It was restored to operations condition by Ray Anderson, an SHS member." Sedona Heritage Museum          

 

 

 

The tent was temporary housing as the permanent buildings were being built. You had everything you needed in this small tent structure.

Morning Sheri.

You photos alone makes me want to make the trip.  That museum is something my wife and I would love to visit.  We're both history buffs, if you couldn't tell

Now that is neat, there are so many things even in Arizona that I have yet to check out.  My desire to travel could easily be satiated just by visiting places in Arizona!
